A toy company manufactures arcade games. They are marketing a new pinball machine to children. It is similar in size to the adult version of the same game. Both the adult and child models are shown below in the link

https://prnt.sc/ld6j0m

 If the perimeter of the adult pinball machine is 177 inches, what is the length of Segment G,A,?

Let x  be the length of GA

 

So.....the perimeter of the adult model is the sum of all the side lengths....so

 

56 + 56 + 35 +  x   =  177    simplify

 

147   +  x  =   177      subtract  147 from both sides

 

x  =  30   =    length of GA

Chris has given you GA       G'A'  will be of proportionate length

14/35  = G'A' / 30

G'A' = 30  14/35 = 12 inches
